Relationship between OTU106, and hypothalamic Npy and WAT IL-6 expression (a) Relative abundance of OTU106; data expressed as box-and-whisker plots (min, IQR, max); n = 11–12; data were analyzed using Kruskal-Wallis test followed by non-parametric Dunn-Bonferroni post-hoc testing. Scatterplots for OTU106 abundance and (b) Il6 gene expression in WAT, and (c) Npy gene expression in the hypothalamus, showing overall lines of best fit; n = 46. d WAT IL-6 protein content; data expressed as mean ± SEM; n = 10–12; data were analyzed by two-way ANOVA followed by Tukey-adjusted post-hoc testing. e Scatterplot for OTU106 abundance and IL-6 protein content in WAT, showing overall lines of best fit; n = 45. ap < 0.05 relative to CSed, bp < 0.05 relative to CEx, cp < 0.05 relative to CafSed
